The year 2019 is already here. We are all currently wrapped up in cosy jumpers and jackets, but spring is approaching very fast. And with spring also come the new fashion trends. There have been a lot of fashion trends featured on the catwalk for the SS19 season, and none of them are florals. Florals? For spring? Groundbreaking!
Today I will talk you through some of the trends that I think will be most popular in the upcoming season. I know I’m quite late to the party of introducing you to the new trends as everybody else did this about a month ago, but I wanted to write this post anyway.
We saw a lot of animal motifs towards the end of 2018 but leopard print is not going anywhere anytime soon! When mixed and matched, animal prints create the perfect outfit for the city jungle. Don’t be afraid to experiment because mixed prints, in general, are going to be a huge trend this season.
I love leopard print, and I’m happy that I can keep wearing my leopard faux fur coat.
Puffed shoulders, gaudy accessories, or skirt suits. These are just a few examples of 1980s fashion. Now is the time to get inspired by Princess Diana’s iconic style.
At first, I wasn’t sure how I felt about this trend. The 1980s are one of my less favourite time periods, but I’ve fallen in love with blouses with puffed sleeves, so we’ll see.
Going hand in hand with the 1980s trends come neon colours. Neon colours will be seen on any kind of materials and in all different variations. Leave the darker wintery colours behind, and wrap yourself in the bright shades of spring and summer.
Okay, as you might have noticed, I don’t wear colours that much. And if I do, they are either pastels or darker shades. Although, I’m open to this trend. Perhaps in two months from now you’ll see me wearing head-to-toe dressed in neon.
Soft shades such as blush, off-white, or biscuit. The shades of beige create an outfit that oozes with elegance and make any piece of clothing look expensive. Head-to-toe beige outfits combining different shades of the colour will be a must this spring and summer.
I’m very excited about this trend. I feel like I don’t wear enough beige, although I love the colour.
Fringed shoes, fringed necklaces, fringed bags, or fringed hems. Out with the ruffles, in with the fringe. We saw fringes on clothing in summer 2018 as a part of the boho chic trend, and it looks like this western-inspired trend is making a comeback.
fAnother trend I’m looking forward to. Although, with 2020s approaching (yeah, I know it’s just the beginning of 2019), I’m slowly getting into the 1920s inspired style (the 1920s will be a huge trend in 2020!). And so, you’ll probably see me wearing fringing on dresses and skirts in the 1920s flapper girl style.
Apparently, bows are going to be seen everywhere in spring and summer 2019. From bracelets and necklaces or embellishments on handbags to hair accessories. This very cute style is easy to implement into your wardrobe. All you need is a piece of ribbon which you can tie around your ponytail, the handle of your handbag, or around your neck as a choker.
I don’t really have anything more to say about this trend. I don’t love it neither do I hate it. But, I’m pretty sure you’ll see me wearing bows at some point.
Despite coral being the colour of 2019 according to Pantone, sage green it is for the spring and summer season. Similarly to the beige trend, we are going to be dressed from head to toe in sage green in the upcoming season.
Green is one of mine, if not the most, less favourite colours. But I must say that I really like this blend of minty and pistachio green. So, we’ll see. Perhaps I will add an item of this colour to my wardrobe.
Aside from the 1980s, we are also going to see a bit of the 1960s this upcoming season. Tie-dye on dresses, two-pieces, or blazers. These are just examples of tie-dye pieces we are going to be wearing in spring and summer 2019. Apparently, this multi-coloured trend is going to be seen everywhere this upcoming season.
Okay, this was unexpected. I must say that this is my least favourite trend of the upcoming season. Yes, I know myself, and I know that if I say that I don’t like a trend, I fall in love with it in just a few weeks. That being said, I don’t see it happening with tie-dye. I’ll definitely pass this trend.
Sequins are the ultimate clothing for parties and celebrations. They make any piece of clothing look very festive. We’ve seen sequins towards the end of 2018 just for the New Year’s Eve but it looks like the 2019 spring and summer season because this sparkly trend is here to stay.
Yay! I’m super excited about this glitzy trend. Lately, I’ve been in love with sequins, and so I’m very happy that I can shop for more.
Is it raining outside? No problem! You can leave your umbrella at home because plastic coats are going to do the trick in the next season. A very non-traditional trend for spring and summer, but it might be practical for the UK weather.
All right. An interesting trend to say the least. I’m currently eyeing a plastic coat on MissyEmpire.com. Perhaps not the most practical trend for summer. But if you live in the UK like me, then you’ll probably find it handy.
You might have already seen some of your favourite bloggers and fashion figures wearing hair clips. Apparently, this very elegant accessory is going to be a huge trend in spring and summer 2019.
I hardly ever wear anything in my hair. I like to keep it in its natural state. But I must say that I’m rooting for this trend.
Fashion trends come back in waves. What was trendy twenty years ago will be in trend now. You might have already seen people like Kendall Jenner or Bella Hadid sport long black coats, or tiny sunglasses in the style of Matrix from 1999. But that’s not all. All the colours of 2000s are making a comeback. Rhinestones and glitter, low-rise jeans and thongs, bucket hats, etc.
Okay, I’m certainly not wearing a bucket hat. No way! But you’ll definitely see me wearing glitter and rhinestones.
As you can tell from all these trends featured above, the spring and summer 2019 season is going to be interesting in terms of fashion. A lot of trends of the past season are going to make an appearance again, and there are also quite a few trends nobody was really expecting to see.
See you soon!
